Rolf Friedli wins with a significant point lead
With an impressive lead of almost 500 points Rolf Friedli won the 18m class of the Swiss Nationals 2016. Fredy Zulliger (left) placed 2nd. Jürg Haas (right) and Christine Bürki followed in places three and four. All these pilots flew ASG 29.
The 18m class was the most strongly contested group with the most participants. Flying was possible on all the competition days except the very first one. However, the hot and humid conditions during the competition were quite stressful for the pilots.
With a 3rd place in the Open class ASH 31 Mi pilot Gabriel Rossier also managed to secure a podium position. Stefan Zlot (ASW 27) placed 2nd in the 15m class.
Competitions in Hungary, USA and Romania
Zoltán Verebélyi in his ASG 29 was able to win the 15m class of the Hungarian Nationals 2016 in Szeged. Richárd Bartolf placed 3rd, also in an ASG 29.
In the USA ASG 29 pilot Peter Deane (photo right) won the US Nationals in the 15m Racing class, followed by David Leonard (ASW 27) and Gary Ittner (ASG 29). In the Open class Dick Butler finished in 3rd place with his Concordia.
Cristian Iacob is the new Romanian champion. He won the “Clubclass 2” in his oldtimer glider Ka 6 at the competition in Tirgu Mures.

ASH 31 Mi-Pilot flies from Elverum to Poppenhausen and back
Our Norwegian representative Øyvind Moe recently visited us with his ASH 31 Mi. Not, however, with a car and trailer but only with his aircraft at the most southerly point on his tour of the Baltic Sea. He started from his home airport Elverum in Norway on 31 May 2016. learn more
Since the weather on the day of the first flight was a little bit dull, we used today’s sunshine to take a few aerial photos of the ASG 32 El. learn more
An environment-friendly sustainer
The electric propulsion system for the ASG 32 EI was first introduced at the AERO exhibition in Friedrichshafen. While the priority last year was to obtain type certification of the Open class ASH 30 Mi as well as the flight testing and type certification of the ASG 32 as a self-launcher and pure sailplane, now the completion of the electric propulsion system has come back into the foreground. learn more
